VID: Reason Remembers the Victims of Communism on Berlin Wall Anniversary

“Remembering the Victims of Communism,” produced by Meredith
Bragg and Michael C. Moynihan. About 4 minutes. Original release
date was November 9, 2009 and original writeup is below.

Twenty years ago today, the Berlin Wall was breached and
Soviet communism, at long last, entered its death
spiral. 

After claiming approximately 100 million victims in the 20th
century, communism was dismissed to the ash heap of history. But
those who suffered under its boot heel have largely been confined
to the history books when not forgotten altogether.

Author and historian Lee Edwards set out to correct this
oversight with the creation of the Victims of Communism memorial
and online museum, dedicated to those who perished because of
Communist regimes between 1917 and
1989.  

Reason.tv spoke to Edwards about the importance of historical
memory, plans for a forthcoming bricks-and-mortar museum in
Washington, DC, and the paintings of Ukrainian gulag survivor
Nikolai Gettman, currently on display at the Heritage Foundation,
where Edwards is a “Distinguished Fellow in Conservative
Thought.”

Produced by Meredith Bragg and Michael C. Moynihan.

 Interview by Moynihan. Shot and edited by Bragg.
Approximately 4 minutes.
